We notice this statement in the Bul
letin's Dow City items of last week:
"Robert Woodruff started on his re
turn to Green River, Utah, Thursday
and will again affiliate among the dis
ciples of Brigham Young." We will
say in justice to Mr. Woodruff that
he never has "affiliated among the
disciples of Brigham Young" and
when he started from Dow City he
had no intention to do so when he ar
rived at his home in Green River. We
think the statement gives a wrong
impression to people who do not
know Mr. Woodruff's contempt for
said disciples, and we further think
the statement should be rectified.
